An Immaculate Duplo DC-445 Creasing machine Direct from a charity in-plant. This one has hardly been used and is in “As New” condition. Complete with slitting option and Air Knife option.
The DC-445 DuCreaser is a fully automated, highly productive, programmable creasing solution for the short-run digital colour market.
The DC-445 DuCreaser is specifically designed to meet the needs of the short-run digital colour print market, providing a creasing solution for the problem of toner/ink cracking which results when digitally printed work is folded.
Offering high speeds, full automation, simple programming and up to 30 memories, it provides a highly productive solution for the creative finishing of a range of digitally produced promotional and direct mail items including flyers, leaflets, brochures, CD covers and greetings cards.
The DuCreaser is also equally suited to finishing offset printed card or laminated stocks. The perfect solution whatever your print engine
The DuCreaser has been designed to economically match environments with 30-80ppm digital printers, however at operating
speeds of up to 50 sheets per minute it is equally capable of handling rated output from 110ppm digital printers as well.
The DuCreaser provides a creasing solution for a wide range of applications;
• Greeting Cards
• 2-fold / 3-fold leaflets
• Book covers
• CD/DVD covers
• Flyers and Mailers
Perforating options can extend the DuCreaser’s capability further, offering high speed perforating for coupon type applications. Likewise slitting options provide a simple solution for applications such as CD covers where a finished size of 120mm is needed.
An automatic suction feeder ensures the consistent delivery of sheets into the machine with no risk of marking. In case of digital stocks with a high level of static, an optional air knife can further assist with sheet separation and feeding.
An optional ultrasonic double feed detector ensures only one document will ever be processed at a time with any misfeeds easily retrievable and undamaged.
A professional finish
Up to 15 creases can be placed across the sheet. These can be adjusted in 0.1mm increments ensuring a high degree of positioning accuracy. An extremely high level of consistent accuracy during any production run is also assured with a tolerance of +/- 0.3mm. Furthermore, the creasing tool can be automatically adjusted up or down to three possible positions to accommodate
different stock thicknesses and provide the best finish. Skew and shrinkage allowances are two operator adjustments which can help to compensate for possible issues arising when the
digital printer generates the image on the paper.
The 100mm feed pile height is complementary to the rated speed and minimises any re-load time. The combination of this capacity along with the top feeding design, means the machine offers exceptional productivity, allowing the operator to perform other tasks while the DuCreaser gets on with the job.
The DuCreaser uses simple step-by-step set-up, assisted by illustrations on the LCD screen which guide the operator seamlessly through the process. Up to 30 jobs can be programmed and stored, providing high productivity with easy recall.
